Each of the 72 guest suites at ski-in/ski-out Beaver Creek Lodge, conveniently located at the base of the ski mountain, has a fireplace as well as a kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker, plus dishes and glassware for four. The one-bedroom suites have doors that close (privacy for adults!) and living areas with pull-out sleeper sofas, so a family of four can fit comfortably here. If you’re willing to share the bedroom with your kiddos, there are some double queen-bedded suites, as well. Still more room? Consider one of the three-bedroom condos. The lodge has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub and Rocks Modern Grill — with its great outdoor patio and fire pits — serves breakfast and dinner.

We chose this hotel because it was dog friendly and a recent addition to the Marriott collection of hotels ie, an Autograph Hotel. Clearly, this location is not up to the standards “yet” for an Autograph Collection Hotel. The rooms are good size, but dated in decor, colors, etc. The TV’s are mounted on the wall, but too small for the space, etc.. The cabinets doors were misaligned and did not close properly, the light in the armoire closet did not turn-off when the door was closed, etc.. A room renovation is sorely needed.
The location charges a $25.00/day resort fee, for what??? As a Titanium Elite with Marriott, I get free internet already! No other benefits outside of normal service expectations are offered. Also, this location is valet parking only at $38.00/day - maybe this makes sense in the winter high-season, but it is unfair in the summer!!!!!
Finally, the location is dog-friendly, but the non-refundable charge is $150.00 - yes, you get a bag of dog treats and several dog toys, but this is an excessive charge.
We will not stay at this hotel again - the add-on charges are excessive and the hotel style/decor is tired and in need of a significant refresh.
Definitely, did not feel my Marriott status was recognized and no accommodations made to offset the significant add-on charges. Too bad, because the location of the hotel in Beaver Creek is excellent.
Heading up to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and this was in a good location for my driving trip up. Beautiful Views, Great Staff and comfortable room. Nice breakfast in the AM too! I was here before they brought the horses in for their summer horseback riding programs. What a great place to go horseback riding for sure! No other Lodges or Hotels near, so it's quite and pristine area. In the winter they rent snowmobiles.....so Summer or Winter great place to just get out without excessive people. ALSO you can rent the entire Lodge! 11 rooms! Check out their website. They do many types of rentals for family reunions and Businesses. Super place.
